Brave (2012)

Directed by
Mark Andrews

The exciting new Sky Movies | Disney HD channel launches with this OscarĀ®-winning folk tale which features the first female lead in a Pixar animation.

Feisty tartan princess Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) is the latest character to capture the imagination, and her world of sweeping Highland panoramas and spinetingling bagpipe scores is a pleasure to behold.

As daughter to venerable leader King Fergus (Billy Connolly) of Clan DunBroch, headstrong teenager Merida is due to be betrothed at an upcoming Highland celebration. The flame-haired youngster can think of nothing worse, preferring to ride out into the woods and practise her archery skills.

Pushy mother Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) is at her wits' end, and wonders if her offspring will ever become the prim princess she desires. When the day of the celebration arrives, Merida is unimpressed with her potential suitors and, after a bust-up with mum, tosses her caber out of the pram and runs away into the forest. There, she encounters a woodland witch who offers a magical solution to her problems. However, the promising results soon turn on their head, and Merida's selfish actions threaten not only her family, but peace among all the clans in the Highlands.
